March 18, 2007: Car accident + open paint buckets



From this Brazilian thread, via Neatorama. If you get into even a smallish car accident... and you are carrying open paint buckets in the back... all of the Internet will point and laugh at you.

Mom, Dad, can I have tacos and a milkshake? I promise I won't get carsick.

Friends don't let friends ride with paint.

If you think that's bad, you should have seen the wallpaper accident down the road.

I guess you could say he had a brush with death.

And of course, "That reminds me. I was planning on watching Paint Your Wagon tonight".


BTW, save this linked pic for a future IOTD.

They towed the red car out of a junk yard to set up this accident as an alibi for his wife. Actually his mistress did it.

Rich, people have sent me that road before, but I can't document it any further than that thread, which is really weak on details IIRC. Either it's very remote and thus rarely mentioned anywhere, or it's a hoax.

Mystery solved. I am the King of Google.

It's actually in China, not Bolivia.

From here, also here.

Guoliang Tunnel is different from other road tunnels; it is quiet, secluded and mysterious, bright one minute and dim the next, full of twists and turns. The wall of the tunnel is uneven and there are more than 30 "windows" of
different sizes and shapes. Some windows are round and some are square, and they range from dozens of metres long to standard-window-size. It is frightening to look down from the windows, where strange rocks hanging form the sheer cliff above and a seemingly bottomless pit lying below. A village, opposite the tunnel, appears to hang on the precipice.

There's a road similar to that, although with not nearly as many windows, in Zion. I have some old pictures of it, but there are probably better ones.

When I saw this I first thought the MythBusters were at it again with trying to paint a room with explosives.

To me it doesn't look like anyone was sitting in the driver's seat when it happened. But what do I know..

No one! That car is way beyond a total - paint not included. A lot of cars are considered a total if the air bags go off. They often cost a fortune to replace and the jolt required to trigger them often means the car got really bashed anyway.

There was. I saw another picture showing the driver, although he didn't get it that badly, because the paint followed the roof-line. The seat backs and headrests blocked much of the wave.
